I am an optician.

Today, at work, I played with glitter.

Today, a story I wrote about a time I miss, but didn't know I'd miss and maybe I only miss it so much because I made up a bunch of fiction about it, was published at decomP.

Please check it out.

I have a really bad cold and it feels like all of my joints are staging a revolt against me.
And maybe my brain has melted and is evacuating via my nostrils.

Today I bought apple cinnamon tea.

I love tea.

I have fond memories of iced tea.

Now if you'll excuse me, I am going to knit a sweater.

Pretty Paisley

I always feel like an asshole. Always.

I know I'm not always being an asshole, but I can't tell myself, oh, m.lady, you're not being an asshole, because that may be the one situation that I am actually being an asshole.

I always feel like I'm a jerk.

I usually have a lump in my throat. The kind you get when you're really upset and on the verge of tears. But I can never figure what exactly is upsetting me.

I finally started writing a story tonight. That's something I haven't done in a while.


Earlier today, Mrs.Bobo informed me that she is high class and in need of surroundings that reflected this fact. I obliged and bought her a paisley cozy dome....thing.

I'm watching MSNBC and thinking, maybe more people need to get in touch with how often they are assholes.

John McCain is an American Hero.
John McCain is a crazy cray cray crazy and realllly out of touch.
The two above statements are mutually exclusive.

red rover red rover send m.lady on over

I've been gone a while. I know.

Truth is I've been a little bit sad. A lot unable to get up and go. It's much easier to sit on the couch and zone out and not think about all that I'm not doing.

I'm just in one of those phases where it seems everyone else's life is moving and changing and they're developing and I'm set to pause, a skipping record, an iceman.

So today was the first day of fall. I had the day off and I told myself I would check out a nearby coffee shop. Test it to see if it would be suitable for sitting and writing for long periods of time.

It also happened to be the pre-determined day for a "Day in the Life" photo project that I take part in on flickr.

Sometimes, it's hard to leave the house because there are so many PEOPLE everywhere. Once I had calmed down it was a lovely day. I walked along Milwaukee Avenue with my camera at my hip, blindly taking pictures.

Here's a whole ton o' photos:
